There are three standard charges for all NHS dental treatments:
Band 1 course of treatment – £18.50
This covers an examination, diagnosis (including X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if needed, and application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant.
Band 2 course of treatment – £50.50
This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal work or removal of teeth.
Band 3 course of treatment – £219.00
This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures and bridges.
More information on NHS charges can be found here.
You may need urgent treatment if you have:
Toothache or swelling that suggests an infection of a tooth or gum.
Severe toothache or facial pain which is not controlled by taking over-the-counter painkillers.
Trauma of the face, mouth or teeth after a recent accident or injury.
A permanent tooth being knocked out.
Bleeding after tooth extraction that you cannot control.
Serious swelling of the mouth or face which is getting worse.
Most urgent treatments can be dealt with in one appointment. However, if more than one visit is required, and you return to the same dentist to complete the urgent course of treatment, you will only need to pay a single Band 1 (£18.50) charge for the whole course.
Once your urgent course of treatment has been completed, you may be advised to make another appointment for a separate course of non-urgent treatment. In this case, you will have to pay a second charge in the relevant treatment band.
More information on urgent treatment can be found here.
Treatment on the NHS is free if you:
• Are under 18 or under 19 and in full time education
• Are pregnant or a nursing mother
• Are in a low income group or exempt, such as income support.
Please check the complete list with the receptionist.
Proof of entitlement to benefit will be asked for on every course of dental treatment. If proof is not shown at the start of your treatment we will have to charge you as if you are a paying patient. You may be able to claim this back by sending a HC5 form with stamped receipts to whichever division you are claiming from. This form is available from reception.
More information on who is exempt can be found here.
